Swiss watchmaker Breitling is known for creating aviator chronographs of the highest degree of sophistication. The most successful watch produced by Breitling is the Chronomat. The Breitling Chronomat debuted around the middle of the last century.

It is the most popular watch from the Breitling Company, and it has witnessed a lot of transformation over the decades to become the number one purpose-made wrist watch for aviators. The original Chronomat was released in 1941, but the current models we see around debuted in 1984. Now there are different versions of the Chronomat including the Chronomat 44, Chronomat 44 Raven, and the Chronomat 44 GMT.

Chronomat 44:

The Chronomat 44 is the flagship of the Breitling chronographs, and the watch is an embodiment of performance and power. It comes in a big but handy 44mm case which houses the Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 and has all the unique features desired by aviators.
